Things to Do in Fountain Inn

Our signature events offer perfect opportunities to come downtown and enjoy time with family and friends. With a variety of events that change with each season, there is sure to be something for everyone.

Starting in March, our St. Patrick’s Day Celebration is a great time to break out your green and bring the family for music, food and fun. The Mac Arnold Festival held in April is one of Fountain Inn’s most popular events.

The summer months are especially busy for our Special Events Department. Starting in May and going through September, we offer a farmers market where local vendors are encouraged to come and sell handmade goods, fresh produce and so much more. We also begin our blue grass series every Saturday night from May through June with live bluegrass bands and food trucks that come from all across Upstate South Carolina.

Dancing on Depot takes over Friday nights starting in June and going through August. Live music from a variety of bands and entertainers around the South Eastern region perform every week. As the months cool down, we look forward to our Halloween Festival in October and as we move into the holiday season, we offer Christmas Inn Our Town, with traditional horse-drawn carriage rides through our beautifully decorated city.
